VRHAM! Virtual Reality & Arts Festival is the first international festival that has been presenting VR art and its creators from all over the world since 2018. The Festival based on the personal releationship between audience and artists. For the first time this year no physical festival could take place in Hamburg and we had to rethink. This year’s festival edition VRHAM! VIRTUAL from 4 to 7 June 2020 was our creative answer to the Covid 19 pandemic and a great festival experiment. With VRHAM! VIRTUAL we have successfully explored the growing digital possibilities. Never before has there been a festival with encounters and social interaction in virtual space. Many things have worked perfectly, others have not always run so smoothly, however. But all these help us to move forward. With this edition and with the support of our festival partners and sponsors we have created a virtual version of VRHAM! which will grow with us and gives us the chance to create a complementary digital VRHAM! Festival for all upcoming physical editions.
The fourth VRHAM Virtual Reality & Arts Festival will take place as a physical festival most likely at the beginning of June 2021 in Hamburg’s Oberhafenquartier.
